View Full Version : Help! Thumb Print On Lens

10-06-2004, 05:42 PM
I am always so careful with cameras, but did a dumb thing and put a big thumb print on my new FZ20 lens. What to do? I have a lens cleaning kit with the fluid and HARD tissues. Should I use the solution and wet the tissue and try to get the print off? Or should I just sell the camera!
I know the cleaning solutions aren't really recommended, but it is a large thumb print.
What to do?

Well, I bit the bullet and cleaned the lens. First I tried the lens solution and lens tissue to clean my old Nikon 950 that has never been cleaned! It didn't work at all. Left a film. So next I breathed on it and used a soft cloth. That did it. Cleaned quite easily. Now if anyone wants to buy a slightly used camera :)
